Stephanie and Patrick made use of our Short & Sweet package for their wedding at The Three Tuns Inn in Bransgore.
As they live in Japan we only met in person for the first time two days before their wedding but through the magic of Skype we knew who we were looking for when we went to the pub for our last minute wedding planning.
Stephanie’s family had flown in from Canada and along with Patrick’s family all stayed nearby in Burley at The White Buck.
Things were kept really relaxed (after all, this was a Bride who had basically backpacked her way to her own wedding). There were no ‘Bride must not be seen before the wedding’ rules. In fact, Patrick often kept popping into the Bridal Suite to see how things were coming along. However, he wasn’t allowed to see the dress until Stephanie made her way downstairs.
After congregating in the bar and sorting buttonholes together the entire wedding party piled into taxis and made their way to Bransgore.
The plan was to have an outdoor ceremony but as rain threatened and spitted the ceremony took place in the barn. Celebrant David Hewitt took the helm and the intimate gathering included a hand-fasting.
Thankfully, the rain held off for everyone to sit down to a Hog Roast dinner outside on their long picnic-style banquet table and after a spot of photos around the grounds and a crack at the Coconut Shy we left everyone to enjoy the rest of their day.
